Magnetic Bearings
A magnetic bearing is an electro magnetic device which maintains the relative position of a rotating assembly with respect to a stationary part and features a unique rotor delevitation system (RDS). This design can operate in high pressure and corrosive environments, avoiding the need for seals and lubrication systems in both thrust and journal designs. 

Waukesha Silicon Carbide and Ceramic Bearings 
These bearings comprise silicon carbide or ceramic materials.  The range comprises plain bearings, tilting thrust pads and tilting journal pads for hostile operating conditions.   The main advantage of these bearings is the increased resistance to wear from impurities and the combined ability to operate with the process fluid as the lubricant, saving weight, space, sealing and expensive oil lubrication systems. 

Waukesha Equalising Thrust Pad Bearings 
Where accurate shaft alignment cannot be assured, self-equalising thrust pad assemblies should be selected.  For carrying even higher loads, Waukesha have developed the “Hyfilm” thrust bearing, which uses a unique leveling system.  This distributes the load amongst the pads through smoother, more efficient mechanism, both radially and circumferentially.
